DG834G 54Mbps vs DG834PN RangeMax

  cactusjack 18:09 17 Dec 2006


I have my eye on 2 wireless routers from Netgear. DG834G (click here) and DG834PN Rangemax (click here).

The Rangemax seems more future proof with better features. However, the reviews on Amazon are far better for the DG834G. Reviews are far more negative for the DG834PN.

Next year, I will have 3 machines that need Internet access - 2 downstairs and one upstairs. The broadband phone line is next to the two machines downstairs. I am presuming that the DG834PN will allow for a better strength connection across the house.

I am unsure of what to go for.

Also, in terms of Vista compatibility, according to click here, DG834pn has compatabile drivers. However, it is unclear if DG834G is compatible, since I am not sure if the model I am looking at is V1, V2 or V3 (click here).

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

One further query to add - are these routers suitable for online gaming?
